    We loved the zoo, unfortunately it was hot and I wasn’t feeling the best this day so we cut our visit short and didn’t get to see everything we hoped. We definitely will come back next time we are in the area to see it all!

    I visited with family and we had a great day at the game. I would love to catch another one sometime. Thanks!

    We just didn’t have enough time! I was impressed with the collection and the facility itself. We have been to museums throughout Europe and the Cincinnati Art Museum compared favorably to those. Easy to navigate.

    Really interesting to learn about all the different types of signs. Could be improved if the guide would tell different things than what the video said.

    Nice place for children to have some free active fun when staying downtown. We stay downtown for the Flying Pig the children were able to play and have fun.

    There is so much here to see, read and learn. If you want to fully experience you will need several hours or plan for multiple visits. We took nearly 2 hours on the 3rd floor, where it’s recommended that you begin, and really didn’t really do it full justice. This museum is for everyone! I thought I was well informed; but learned so much.

    The Brooklyn bridge was modeled after this Roebling suspension bridge built here in the Queen City of the West

    SGC opened in 1845.

    If you go, stop in the office. They have information about everything going on in SGC...it's free. The ladies in the office are VERY NICE and HELPFUL.

    733 acres of towering trees, 15 soothing lakes, 44 miles of well paved winding roadways. AWESOME!

    SGC is the 2nd largest Cemetery in America

    Whenever people come to visit me, the first place I take them is to the top of Carew tower. It is one of the rare places you have open rooftop views of the entire city. You can look out across the river into Kentucky, or look north to the Over the Rhine area and take in views of the hills and river. If you have someone there to point out the sights, even better.

    I love Cincinnati and blog about it often. Carew Tower is one of my must-see’s in a city full of many great attractions.

    The River walk along “The Banks” of the Ohio river is a must do for anyone who loves beautiful scenery while getting a sense of the city. Perfect for families with children as there are numerous playgrounds and activities. Great historical info along the way too. We did a loop that was roughly 5 miles that took us through two states and three cities, walking on the Cincinnati side to the Purple People’s bridge (a cool pedestrian bridge) to Newport, Kentucky, then across another smaller bridge to Covington, Kentucky where we walked around a residential neighborhood of Civil War era homes. Nearby are some great local restaurants where we stopped for a bite to eat and rest before walking on the Roebling suspension bridge back to Cincinnati. Great way to spend a beautiful day!

    After the dreary days of winter it’s nice to go somewhere where you can see flowers. It’s not a huge place and only took only 30-40 minutes to go through it. Still it’s a great place to relax, see beautiful flowers, and take a few pictures and simply enjoy the view. They do have a small parking lot behind the building and it’s in the scenic Eden Park. While you are there perhaps a visit to the Cincinnati Art Museum just up the hill is in order. The permanent exhibits are always free there. Make a day of it.

    This place was nice as far as museums go and we enjoyed the time we spent browsing around here. What really stuck out was how the building is a converted old train terminal and that was quite neat and beautiful to see.

    Eden Park is a great place to visit. It’s a good place to sit and relax, enjoy a picnic, or even get some exercise. Views along the Ohio River are enjoyable. Parking is free onsite but it would be good to add additional accessible parking.

    I love finding small markets to go to in each city I visit. Cleveland has one and I love it, so I thought this would be a great place to stop. I was not disappointed! It’s definitely a smaller market, but there’s still tons of local vendors selling meats, cheeses, bakery items and fresh produce from local farms. There’s also tons of little shops and restaurants in the surrounding blocks with brewery district being only a walk away. There’s also some home goods vendors and clothing for those who are too far away from home to buy food. It’s a great place if you’re looking for something local to explore. Parking is easy to find, there’s tons of little lots where you can easily pay by app or by kiosk. It’s also pretty cheap all things considered, about 2 dollars an hour.

    Beautiful place downtown. About 1/2 a city block. Great fountain. Large stage with music the afternoon we were there. Beer/drinks available to consume in the park. Pretty place,
